Indeed. And Beeg apparently believes that Trump is a greater President than Reagan and Lincoln combined. Even better than Calvin Coolidge, which is blasphemy.

Nunes didn't inform Trump of squat other than that he/Nunes now knows what the Obama/Clinton teams did illegally. Illegally is putting it quite mildly.

They have worked hard to destroy the Democrat Party and are succeeding. That isn't good. The worst of it is that the rand a file Ds are supporting it. At least those who are not leaving it.
It's good that Nunes finally has the IC info that you've had for weeks. Did he vet the info with the Cauldron Crew before running off to tell daddy Trump or was the CC his source?

Bob Woodward: Obama officials possibly facing criminal charges for unmasking scheme

http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/w...sibly-facing-criminal-charges/article/2618185

The Washington Post's Bob Woodward warned on Wednesday that there are people from the Obama administration who could be facing criminal charges for unmasking the names of Trump transition team members from surveillance of foreign officials.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., said earlier that he had briefed Trump on new information, unrelated to an investigation into Russian activities, that suggested that several members of Trump's transition team and perhaps Trump himself had their identities "unmasked" after their communications were intercepted by U.S. intelligence officials.

The revelation is notable because identities of Americans are generally supposed to remain "masked" if American communications are swept up during surveillance of foreign individuals.

During an interview on Fox News, Woodward said that if that information about the unmasking is true, "it is a gross violation."

He said it isn't Trump's assertion, without proof, that his predecessor wiretapped Trump Tower that is of concern, but rather that intelligence officials named the Americans being discussed in intercepted communications.


"You can learn all kinds of things from diplomats gossiping, because that's what occurs. Under the rules, and they are pretty strict, it's called minimization. You don't name the American person who is being discussed," Woodward said.

He noted that there are about 20 people in the intelligence community who, for intelligence reasons, can order this "minimization" be removed.

"But the idea that there was intelligence value here is really thin," Woodward said. "It's, again, down the middle, it is not what Trump said, but this could be criminal on the part of people who decided, oh, let's name these people."

He drove the point home, adding that "under the rules, that name is supposed to be blanked out, and so you've got a real serious problem potentially of people in the Obama administration passing around this highly classified gossip."
Remember when bga1 quoted Bob Woodward?

And so? You can quote a person and they can be right and a week later you can quote the same person and they can be wrong. There are no perfect people.

That said, you are going to make a big play out of the Woodward tapes and that is going to get you a couple days of hate Trump mileage. Every president is going to downplay potential disaster until there is a plan in place. He knew it was going to be bad, but he didn't want to create a panic. Like I said, this is going to throw all the hate Trump leftists into a furor and may create some short term gains. Smart people will get it. You might not.

Even Trump knew that the coronavirus was deadly and worse than the flu. The only ones that didn't know were his stupidest of followers: booj, deuce, kfc, GWG, spoof, CRG, oh gee, and a bunch of others not worth naming.

ROFL....Trump knew his followers were so stupid that they'd continuously repeat anything he told them. Turns out that looking foolish is the new norm for some righties. "Sir may I have another?"

You and Trump deserve each other. Zero integrity, zero respect for truth, zero care for our nation.

Before you lefties come to orgasm in your circle jerk, Dr Fauci has said that Trump did not distort information to the public about CV. Further, he said that Trump discussed the information that the task force shared with him accurately. Dr Fauci also said that he has no recollection of secondhand accounts that were attributed to him in the Woodward book.

The term “downplaying” has been abused by many since CV began. Trump further stated that he did it to “avoid panic”. Under the left definition of “downplaying” being a lie, I guess we could say that JFK lied about the Cuban missile crisis in 1962.

Based on Biden’s comments, we can only assume that he would’ve been running around the White House saying “we’re all dead”.

Soooooo, the guy that shut down all international travel from China in late January is now accused of "downplaying"?

Is that what we're going with now? Trump shuts down travel in January and in mid-late February Pelosi is urging people to Chinatown and Cuomo is telling people to go about your business, nothing to see here.

And people like Wally and Howie actually buy this stuff.

Ever think that Fauci knows he can't say anything and keep his job. And he probably feels his job is pretty important.

Good grief. March 9? That's what you're going with? Are you seriously implying that any outrage over "downplaying" is really talking about the first few weeks? For real?

I have to say that probably over 50% of the reason I stop by every day is to see you flounder and drown here. I can't be the only one to get some entertainment watching you respond to dog whistles every day, citing NY Times and WaPo in almost every post.

10 days later he told Woodward he was trying to downplay it. Dear Leader is telling you Dear Leader lied and you still believe fervently Dear Leader only speaks the truth. There's a word for this type of belief.

You stop by every day to defend your cult leader because you are an imbecile.

So 10 days after March 9 would still be.... March? Got it. 10 days later makes the argument totally more valid

Trump said he was downplaying the virus!

You need to move past Phase 1 of "Fake news!" because we're already onto Phase 2 "Sure he did it, but it was good! "

Ogee, you're a pretty decent troll, sometimes very good.

However, you don't follow conversations well. You're a hit-and-run poster. Maybe you should stay in your lane. Stick with what you're good at. When we need someone serious to reply with a brain, then just stay away. That's not you.

Trump is phucked.

Biden or an affiliated PAC will run an ad. It will contain Trump's voice from the recorded interview talking about how bad the virus is. While the Voice Over of Trump is playing, the television screen will show the date said those words. The ad will then jump to Trump downplaying the virus in his on words. The television screen will show the date(s) Trump lied and said those words.

It will be devastating.

I'm surprised it's not out already. Biden's 14 year old rapid response director needs to stop slacking off.

Fauci is in his 70s. He can say whatever the fuck he wants.

Every time a legitimate source contradicts the lefty narrative, they’ve got a built in excuse for everyone of them. It’s BS. Fauci has killed it. He could’ve said nothing, but he said Trump was not lying or distorting. Get over it.

It was more than a week and it was the other way around. He was wrong three years ago. This thread is fake news.

Now he has actual audio evidence of President Dotard. Nothing false there.

Trump "demanded" and "pressured" him to say it.
That one fits for just about any person and situation.
